As GigaOM reports, The watch will connect to a Samsung watch manager app on the phone to manage the connection between watch and the phone. The connection will use Samsung’s proprietary accessory protocol and will use Bluetooth LE as the network transport. Apparently if there is any app running on the watch, it is its own discreet endpoint and will work directly with the servers.

Appsfor Galaxy Gear will come from Samsung App Store & not from google Play Store.This could mean the watch will only work with Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets. However, social media apps like Facebook and Twitter will be heavily integrated, along with a collection of health apps.
